Mavigator - Virtual Cockpit for Drones
Mavigator is a web server and interface simulating a cockpit of an unmanned aerial vehicle. It is compatible with any drone that uses the MAVLink protocol for communication.
- Compile and run
- Go to
localhost:8080to view a mock drone
- (TODO: configure connection to a real UAV)
Mavigator's main function is to listen for MAVLink messages on some interface (serial port for example) and forward them to a web interface where the data is parsed and displayed. This general flow of data is implemented in various sub-projects, each contained in their own directories:
├── mavigator-bindings MAVLink utility library, used by all other projects. ├── mavigator-cockpit Cockpit web interface that displays real-time data from drones. ├── mavigator-server Web server that relays messages from drones to clients. ├── mavigator-uav Communication backend for message exchange with drones. └── project Build configuration.
Following the path of message from reception to display, here are detailed descriptions of the sub-projects.
Contains common message sources, such as a mock connection that generates arbitrary flight data or a serial connection. These backends are accessed through an Akka system extension, exposing them as Akka Stream
The server is the main application entry point. It opens a message backend and also serves the web interface cockpit. It is implemented with Akka Http and uses Twirl for HTML templating.
A web UI built with Scala.js that simulates a cockpit. It connects to the server via websockets and displays MAVLink messages in the form of classic aviation instruments (artificial horizon etc).
Purely a utility project on which all other projects depend. It uses the sbt-mavlink plugin generate Scala code from a MAVLink dialect definition.
